Next time you winterize, do it just as you did this past year. Once you get the pipes pressurized with antifreeze, then go outside the TT and take the filter screen off of your city water inlet. . There is a little backflow valve in there. Just stand to the side and push it in with your finger. The pressure in the lines will expel the water and the pink stuff will then come flying out. (This is why you need to stand to the side, or you too will be pink) Bingo! You have now winterized your city water pipe.

I did this on my last two units and for some reason, the back flow valve did not want to depress by pushing on it. I forced it and broke it, on both units. Had to replace the city water inlet two times. On the 5th wheeler the city water inlet is inside the storage area so hopefully, I am not going to do that again!. If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all!

Funny, I thought that first paragraph sounded familiar to me.
Remember, there is a "quote" feature available on the forum, so other people's postings don't get misinterpreted as your own.

When winterizing the city water connection, you need to bleed off most of the pressure from the water pump. If you don't do this, you can un-seat the O-ring inside the connection. If this happens and it doesn't seal, just take it apart and reseat the O-ring. No need to buy a new one.

Same newbie mistake....too much pressure and O-ring needs to be reset. Dealer told me to make the city water connection the last step in winterizing. Turn off pump.....go outside and push in on valve....yell at your wife to turn pump on....stand aside.....done. I didn't fix mine yet.....just bought a plastic screw on cap and put that on the city water inlet when starting the winderizing procedure.
